Can’t a girl eat fried chicken in peace?!
Well, not when you’re Khloé Kardashian or Kylie Jenner: Your Popeyes craving becomes controversial.
It all started Thursday afternoon at New York’s Javits Center, when the Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars boarded a private jet with a super-size bag of Popeyes in tow. Naturally, Kylie Instagrammed a photo, captioning it simply, “that’s just how we do it.”
Once the ladies were inside the private plane, they changed into comfier clothes and got ready to chow down. Momager Kris Jenner, makeup artist Joyce Bonelliand hairstylist Jen Atkin joined in, too, and the fivesome took flight celebrating “Popeyes and PJs!!!!!!”
It seemed innocent enough, but it didn’t take long before Khloé and Kylie partaking in Popeyes made headlines—and not in a good way. Khloé responded to the criticism on Twitter.
Seeing some of the stories/comments in regards to my Instagram. How is any one “trying to be black” because they are eating food?

She opened up a dialogue about the topic with a few fans, agreeing that those hurling racial allegations at her over something so silly were “incredibly judgmental.”
Again, can’t a girl just eat some fried chicken in peace?!
